I'm an inventor scientist with 20 patents and I have a good grasp of how things work.
The Climate Alarmist Religion does not like:
1,300 watts per square meter solar heat
0.028 watts per square meter anthropogenic heat
0.004 parts CO2 in atmosphere.
If GHG reflects heat back to earth it would reflect 46,000 times as much heat into space. The more GHG the cooler the earth would become.
Research - there is far more than this:
Forest management is the key to preventing wildfires:
Planting more forests is an exercise in futility until we have the will to control wildfires in the forests we have. (In grade 6 we learned that when a tree grows it absorbs CO2. When it dies it releases the CO2 back into the atmosphere)
If a single 220,000# whale can capture the same amount of carbon dioxide as 30,000 trees, and be worth $2,000,000 in carbon credits, then a single 1,200 pound cow can capture the same amount of carbon dioxide as 8,800 trees, and is worth $10,800 in carbon credits!
Tens of thousands of scientists deny Anthropogenic climate change. The media likes to call them ignorant. (So they can ignore them?)
Estimated 40 Percent of Scientists Doubt Manmade Global Warming
Climate Science's Myth-Buster
It's time to be scientific about global warming, says climatologist Judith Curry
From Turku University in Finland https://www.utu.fi/en
NO EXPERIMENTAL EVIDENCE FOR THE SIGNIFICANT ANTHROPOGENIC CLIMATE CHANGE
The list goes on and on. Media likes to ignore the facts and blame every weather event on climate change. Venice is flooding because of it. No mention that the flood was higher 60 years ago.
Is there hope that we will get impartial reporting in the foreseeable future?

Pastor Todd Petkau https://www.riverwood.cc/Who checks movie credits? The Psalms list credits.
They are 5 ancient hymnals. David wrote 73 Psalms.
Korah family wrote 11.
Korah and his sons wanted leadership.
Then Moses said to Korah, "You and all your company present yourselves before the Lord – you and they, and Aaron – tomorrow. When he had finished speaking all these words, the ground that was under them split open, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them, along with their households, and all Korah's men, and all their goods. They and all that they had went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed over them. So they perished from among the community.
Numbers 16:16, 31-33 NET
Those guys were crazy. But then their descendants wrote songs. The Hitler line is dying out. No one wants to carry that name. Why would anyone want to be associated with crazy Korah?
God does not define you with your past. God does not consult your past to determine your future. That's what satan does.
Then I heard a loud voice in heaven saying, "The salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the ruling authority of his Christ, have now come, because the accuser of our brothers and sisters, the one who accuses them day and night before our God, has been thrown down.
Revelation 12:10 NET
God is greater than any accusation. We have come to know love by this: that Jesus laid down his life for us; thus we ought to lay down our lives for our fellow Christians.
1 John 3:16 NET
Are we handcuffed by our past? The sons of Korah wrote:
As a deer longs for streams of water, so I long for you, O God! I thirst for God, for the living God. I say, "When will I be able to go and appear in God's presence?"
Psalms 42:1-2 NET
So then, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; what is old has passed away – look, what is new has come!
2 Corinthians 5:17 NET
The sons of Korah decided to follow God.
God gives us peace when we surrender even in the face of death.
Why are you depressed, O my soul? Why are you upset? Wait for God! For I will again give thanks to my God for his saving intervention.
Psalms 42:11 NET
Deal with your troubles by worshipping God.
One deep stream calls out to another at the sound of your waterfalls; all your billows and waves overwhelm me.
Psalms 42:7 NET
Trust God regardless. We can't do better job of running the universe
Regardless of what happens Praise the Lord no matter what.
Sing it no matter what. Responsive readings should be a joyful declaration.

Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live even if he dies, and the one who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?" She replied, "Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God who comes into the world."
John 11:25-27 NET
Jon's fellow pilot friend shared: Jon always showed love and concern to everyone with kindness and honour. He did not suffer fools. He would educate others. Bite me I work here.
He would fly us to remote lakes. Making life better. Jon did an air drop for him. Son Wyatt always talked to Jon his hero. I'll miss you Jon.
Sisters Julie and Lois:
On behalf of the family thank you for coming.
That we are Brokenhearted is an understatement.
The shy brother brought a beautiful young lady home once, they got married and they had cute kids.
He lived with purpose and common sense.
Jonathon loved his nieces and nephews. We had quality times together.
Nieces and nephews shared:
I loved going on plane rides with him.
Uncle was caring. Fun. He was Mischievous compassionate. Included everyone.
Our family has learned that thankfulness and grief are not exclusive. We are thankful for the wonderful son, brother, uncle, & friend Jon was.
Diana Halverson, Doug McPherson ambulance service: Jon was a great guy to go on calls with. He said we were "Saving lives one blister at a time."
Terry: I have known Jonathan all his life. Was his youth leader. He flew us up north on a camping trip in his Otter (airplane).
Have met his friends and family. Tanya asked me to speak.
He was raised well and had a wonderful life
He chose to have a relationship with Jesus. His heart was right with God. His life was modeled after Jesus. He is in God's presence now.
Micah 6:8 was their favorite verse.
He has told you, O man, what is good, and what the Lord really wants from you: He wants you to promote justice, to be faithful, and to live obediently before your God.
Micah 6:8 NET
Walk humbly. Make it personal. Walk with God. You too, can have the joy and peace Jonathan had.

The Lord has promised life to me. Unending love amazing grace.

"Do not judge so that you will not be judged. For by the standard you judge you will be judged, and the measure you use will be the measure you receive. In everything, treat others as you would want them to treat you, for this fulfills the law and the prophets.
Matthew 7:1-2, 12 NET
Had to challenge some exams at Providence. Got a job in BC but not pastoral position. Felt judged.
We don't like to be judged. If you've been caught for speeding there is a sinking feeling of being judged.
Accountability. Wouldn't it be nice not to have rules to follow? Judgement is God's job. To call someone a jerk is to be judging just like God. The standard is Christ. We'll never meet that standard. Jesus says don't be a hypocrite. Look at yourself to make sure you don't have Beam in your eye.
We'll see face to face in eternity.
Ray Friesen is a mountaineer and should be dead by now. They slid down a mountain chute and almost crashed into a crevice. A rope team helps mountaineers survive in difficult terrain.
Repent for calling someone a jerk.
Be in a rope team in church.
Pigs and pearls? What's that all about?
2 ways to miss the point.
1. Judge to control the truth to you. U B U?
2. Take the splinter out of your neighbor's eye without regard for what I do
Jesus invites us to a better way. Look at fruit. Who's on your rope team? It starts with your relationship with Jesus.
In everything, treat others as you would want them to treat you, for this fulfills the law and the prophets.
Jesus replied, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
John 14:6 NET

Obedience. Walk with Jesus in the rope team.
Rob was my coach to becoming a pastor. Delbert is my accountability. Matt is also part of my rope team.
